Abstract

Numerous diffusion based phenomena occurring during thermal processing of steel can be modelled with finite difference techniques. This paper aims at reviewing those including one or more moving boundaries and especially phase transformations and precipitation which govern most of the final product properties. Quantitative knowledge of the underlying mechanism is of prime importance for the process control. Modelling the kinetics of precipitation and dissolution of binary particles such as MnS or AIN requires solving Pick's second law in a finite iron matrix for both species forming the
